Can I trust ChatGPT to write my resume? Will it work to land interviews?

QUESTION: How can my resume help me prepare for an interview?


Cathy Lanzalaco, Inspire Careers

Yes, your resume can help prepare you for an interview by recounting all the amazing accomplishments you’ve had and the value you’ve provided at each job you’ve held, particularly the less recent ones. Use your resume as a guide to create stories that you can share during an interview and enhance your impact on the interviewer. People remember great stories. Practice them and own them!​

Kate Williamson, Scientech Resumes

A strong resume uses career stories to highlight relevant achievements, contributions, and impact on the team, department, company, etc. Know your resume backward. You can anticipate interview questions by studying the job posting requirements, matching them to specific career stories on your resume, and preparing to expand on these examples using the challenge, action, results, or CAR framework.

Brenda Collard-Mills, Robust Resumes

Interview prep starts by having a clear understanding of the job title(s) you’re targeting and reviewing 2 or 3 job postings. Then focus your resume writing on responses you would give in a job interview to prove you’re a worthy candidate meeting the qualifications to jump in and succeed in the role. You’re now well-prepared to answer questions clearly and confidently in an interview.
